Fitzpatrick Wilderness

The Fitzpatrick Wilderness in western Wyoming. (Google Maps)

This is some of the most ruggedly-spectacular country in the world. Fitzpatrick Wilderness is nearly 200-thousand acres of picture-postcard mountains and glaciers that lie between Moran Junction and Dubois, Wyoming. It covers the northeast side of the Wind River Mountains, the Bridger Wilderness is to the west, the Continental Divide and the Wind River Reservation border on the east.

Fitzpatrick Wilderness is a National Historic Site, established by Congress in 1976. It was named after respected mountain man and guide, Tom Fitzpatrick. Fitzpatrick was a former U.S. Army scout, an Indian Agent, and the one-time head of the Rocky Mountain Fur Company.

Fitzpatrick Wilderness has 44 active glaciers, that cover more than 7,700 acres, within its borders. Two of them, Dinwoody Glacier and Bull Lake Glacier, are two of the largest glaciers in the Continental United States. And the crown jewel of Fitzpatrick Wilderness is Gannett Peak, the highest point in Wyoming, at 13,800 feet.
